Neuro start up entrepenuers
In the Neuro startup challenge I would be interested to know how STEM researchers faired against entrepenuers in the later stages. Since getting venture capital depends on getting your message across so people want to spends on it, I'm wondering if the entrepenuers stastically beat out the STEM researchers for getting into the later rounds of the start up. Either way it looks like a steallar way for new healthcare ideas to get funded.

Simple is good
The smart pill bottle strikes me as the most focused and useful of the products in this batch.

Thank you for recognizing MedWand. Our device is designed to move the entire telemedicine industry from consultations to actual, real-time examinations. In response to the point made in the article, we will absolutely be seeking the appropriate FDA clearances, a process that has already begun.

I smell another bubble
With all the money being poured into healthcare startups that VCs, no doubt, consider easy money to be made, this is remniscent of the late 90s/early 2000s when the tech boom was in full swing.  Unfortunately, the dot com days soon turned into dot bomb once the big players made their money.  However, everyone else was left holding a pink slip and/or left with an empty bank account.  I don't see a meaningful difference between then vs now.  It's the same irrational exuberance all over again.

To our health!

It's a great list. I think the potential is tremendous for technology to attack contagious diseases and help those with chronic illnesses reduce crises. These companies all have interesting solutions that touch on these areas, I hope they are successful in their efforts for all our health! The challenge will be integrating all this technology into the existing infrastructures to become most effective and efficient.

End To End Solution
There are e2e solutions getting developed which will be more useful. Like device to collect data, analysis, automated personal recommendation and delivery of medcines. This is specfically useful for chronic diseases. I know a company called Cooey Technologies doing this out of India. Not sure it will be available in US from them for now. But a company to watch.

health start ups cliche'd and misses point
So like the big pharma fallacy, the PR trolls will cite epic misinformation violating the AMA Code of Ethics to make sure the masses are completely misguided so they can stay sick to need these things.  So many of these "Cures" and the big hype on Obamacare is a big disaster in the first place.  It's HORRIBLE.  

I was exploited for $4000 and I caught the doctors red handed.  No tech, no drug would've spared me the trouble caused by a severe conflict of interest.  I am ready to pull their hair out.  

Some of these "start ups" are gimmicks.  I get the entire Blue Sky business where nepotism is encouraged for the right reasons, but in todays' market- nothing gets IPO'd unless it's already big.  So they're just getting their friends to buy them out.  

And we, taxpayers who helped fund the tech expansion for the techies only at our expense as consumers of a monopolized sector stuck in red tape are supposed to go along with innovation to benefit as an economy, consumer or healthcare provider.  So somebody with investors' money in a big firm can buy them out and make their friends rich.
